A Few Quick Tips:

Cook your rice beforehand and allow it to cool or use day-old leftover rice for this recipe. When your rice is cool, it holds less moisture which ultimately will help your fried rice be less mushy. Have all of your seasonings and ingredients ready before beginning so that you can simply toss and mix in as you go. Feel free to omit the chicken if you’re looking for a vegetarian meal, or substitute it with beef, shrimp or tofu, for something new.
